John Grisham
John Grisham woke up at 5:00 every morning for three years to complete his first novel, A TIME TO KILL. Working as a lawyer and a member of Mississippi's state legislature, Grisham published his debut thriller with a small and somewhat unknown publisher, receiving only local readership in his home state. He finally burst on to the national scene with his second novel, THE FIRM, a legal thriller that sold millions of copies and stayed on the New York Times best-seller list for 47 weeks. Shortly afterward, Grisham moved to Oxford, Mississippi, where he began working on a series of new legal thrillers, including THE PELICAN BRIEF and THE CLIENT, all of which became bestsellers and were subsequently made into successful films. Having graduated from the University of Mississippi in Oxford with a law degree in 1981, Grisham went on to base his popular thrillers on his experience as a specialist in criminal defense. His once-unknown debut, A TIME TO KILL, was made into a major motion picture in 1996.
Praise
"Barant continues to explore themes of persecution and discrimination with outsider Jace struggling to find her place....A stellar addition to an already outstanding series." (top pick)
From the Publisher
Annotation It's not always easy to earn a buck as a lawyer in Chicago, at least not for Oscar Finley and Wally Figg. Their names may be cute, but they are fairly shameless when it comes to what these two will do to chase down an easy-money legal conflict. So when a frustrated young lawyer with corporate firm experience wants to team up, Finley & Figg can hardly believe their luck--especially since David Zinc comes baring information about a big class-action suite that's about to break against a prescription drug company. Varrick Labs makes a killing, but it's becoming apparent that their cholesterol drug, Krayoxx, might also do some damage. Finley & Figg simply need to track down a handful of Krayoxx users who have had heart trouble, and they should stand to earn some real money for once. THE LITIGATORS is, however, a John Grisham novel, so don't think it will all go smoothly for Finley, Figg, and Zinc. In his 25th novel, Grisham employs a light hand that keeps this story zooming along and always fun to read.
Editors Note #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER   ?Grisham is an absolute master.??The Washington Post   After leaving a fast-track legal career and going on a serious bender, David Zinc is sober, unemployed, and desperate enough to take a job at Finley & Figg, a self-described ?boutique law firm? that is anything but. Oscar Finley and Wally Figg are in fact just two ambulance chasers who bicker like an old married couple. But now the firm is ready to tackle a case that could make the partners rich?without requiring them to actually practice much law. A class action suit has been brought against Varrick Labs, a pharmaceutical giant with annual sales of $25 billion, alleging that Krayoxx, its most popular drug, causes heart attacks. Wally smells money. All Finley & Figg has to do is find a handful of Krayoxx users to join the suit. It almost seems too good to be true . . . and it is.   ?John Grisham may well be the best American storyteller writing today.??The Philadelphia Inquirer   ?Where Grisham leads, millions of readers follow.??New York Daily News   ?A mighty narrative talent.??Chicago Sun-TimesIncludes an excerpt of John Grisham's Calico Joe and a special preview of his upcoming novel The Racketeer
Editors Note 2 Law firm partners Oscar Finley and Wally Figg see a chance for huge financial gain when they learn of a pending class action lawsuit against the makers of Krayoxx, a popular cholesterol-reducing drug suspected of causing heart attacks.
